Grading of Students with IEPs

Standards-Based IEP: Grading Considerations and Practices

Grading and Progress Monitoring of Students with Disabilities

Grading of students with IEPs can be challenging. How do you document accommodations? How do modifications change the grade? Or do they? Do you add points for effort? TEA recognizes that teachers struggle with these questions - regardless of the type of classroom where the student receives instruction. To assist teachers and administrators in understanding best practices in grading of students with IEPs, TEA, in conjunction with ESC Region 20, developed the following resource.

It is important to note that this video covers much, but not all, of the content in the guide. It is important to become knowledgeable about and use the guide when making decisions regarding grading.
